London-based period instrument ensemble, The Amadè Players, with their artistic director and conductor Nicholas Newland, make their commercial recording debut on the Resonus Classics label with this innovative and fascinating programme of works from unjustly neglected composers of the early classical era.

Inspired by Newland’s original research into the period, the group explore composers who inspired and cultivated innovation in eighteenth-century Vienna. Alongside Haydn and Mozart, these composers revolutionised the symphony in particular, while making drastic impacts on the concerto and sacred vocal genres.

With concertos from violinists George Clifford and Dominika Fehér, The Amadè Players are also joined by the Choir of Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge (dir. David Skinner), for the Requiem Mass in E flat major by Johann Baptist Waṅhal.

'[...] the performances, which feature very good orchestral playing, are directed by Newland with a sure and idiomatic hand.'

'[...] the performances, which feature very good orchestral playing, are directed by Newland with a sure and idiomatic hand.'
Early Music Review

'Clifford contributes some well-articulated passagework [...] both soloists interact well in passagework (often in 3rds and 6ths) in the Sturm und Drang outer movements and in short sections of dialogue in the lightly scored central Adagio, and their readings of Dittersdorf’s original cadenzas are delightful. [...] The recording is exemplary'
The Strad

'This makes for an attractive collection of works by a trio of composers active in Vienna at the time of Mozart and Haydn.'
Early Music Today

'[...] the young players of The Amadè Players interpret it with considerable style and gusto.This is fascinating insight into the repertoire, and composers, that are usually overlooked in favour of their more illustrious musical cousins. What the music might lack in intellectual and emotional depth is more than made up for by its sheer delight.'
